Biomass Preparation, Handling & Storage Workshop





Meeting Room 106

The operation and financial success of any biomass-to-energy facility requires its operators to utilize high-quality, consistent biomass feedstocks. The Biomass Preparation, Handling & Storage Workshop agenda will allow producers to take an in-depth look at the latest innovations and strategies in biomass handling and compare it to their own. Whether producers are sourcing wood chips from a handful of trusted suppliers for a campus boiler or are a biorefinery working to gather, store and convert hundreds of thousands of tons of agricultural residues, this agenda will offer practical value.

Presentations may include, but are not limited to:
  • Energy efficient particle size reduction approaches
  • Effective conveyance strategies
  • Dust management, spark detection and spark arrest
  • Preventing feedstock quality degradation
  • In-situ feedstock processing and biomass upgrading
  • Manufacturing biomass intermediates
  • Cost-effective biomass storage options and system
